Kendrick Lamar Performs On Saturday Night Live (Video)

blame it on Illy January 27, 2013

Kendrick Lamar makes his “Saturday Night Live” debut as tonight’s musical guest appearing on a hilariously comedic SNL Digital Short with The Lonely Island and Adam Levine as well as hitting the main stage for performances of his good kid, m.A.A.d city singles “Swimming Pools (Drank)” and an amazing live rendition of “Poetic Justice,” with album producer Terrace Martin on the saxophone. UPDATE: If you’d like an .mp3 of the performances, I’ve included audio rips here.
